    Hey, Welcome to the Forums, I'm new as well.
    This is a good start, one thing I would recommend is some figure studies. Maybe check out some of Loomis' books. He's a genius.

    its definately a good start..

    do you ever get a chance to do any life drawing? if not i highly recommend doing so. maybe even just sit on a park bench somewhere.

    the thing about drawing is that it IS a science (please no crucifixion) but it is not an exact science. it requires confidence..and lots of it..

    ooooooh....and theres a book...the Atlas of Human Anatomy...dont know who made it but it is a very Very good reference

    4 hour drawing class for that little, nice find. Wish I could find something like that around here : P
    Not being super skilled myself, all I can say is PRACTICE. I draw for at least a hour a day, carry a sketchbook around with you.
    Drawing from life is great practice.

    Thank you for leaving a post in my sketchbook!
    Seems like you are very eager to learn how to draw, huh?
    Well you made a good start!
    Your Idea of "bouncing of" sounds good.. i guess it would help us both in developing further. lets stay in contact

    Hey there. Great start to your sketchbook, be sure to check out Loomis (as previously suggested ) and Bridgman to get your anatomy studies down.

    For sketching, don't be afraid to use a broad range of pencils, I typically always use a 4B, because you can push the darks pretty well with that. And don't be afraid to push them! It will really help your images pop

    Also, try not to outline everything to harshly, vary your strokes (I have to learn this myself as well, as I tend to do the exact same thing lol) Anyhow, I hope this helps a little, and keep your work coming, I will check back in every now and again ^^
